The Magic Of Revlite

Are you planning to have your first Revlite session? Not to worry, we’re here to give you a low down on all things about Revlite. Before booking your first appointment, get to know if Revlite is right for you. What is Revlite? Revlite is a next-generation Q-switched laser technology, known as an aesthetic medical laser that offers a wide range of power and versatility. It is mainly used to target all sorts of pigmentations, without harming the surrounding skin for all skin types.It uses an exceptional shutter speed which produces nanosecond pulse, making the procedure safer since less heat will be involved in the process.   The Revlite Laser features the Photoacoustic Technology Pulse, that delivers very narrow pulse widths at peak energy even at larger spot sizes.  The trademark Photoacoustic technology is delivered through a superior flat-top beam profile without spikes that are prevalent in other Q-switched Nd:Yag laser.  This makes the treatment safe, effective and stable for the patient. What are the benefits? Revlite is loved by celebrities and busybodies as it does not take a lot of time.It has a lot of benefits and it has no downtime. It is used to remove varying discolorations such as freckles, acne scars, axillary hyperpigmentation (dark underarms), age spots, even-aged eyebrow tattoos. As a bonus, Revlite laser promotes collagen regeneration and minimizes pores, fine lines and wrinkles in the process so much so that we don’t really need to put a lot of makeup anymore. How does it work? Unlike Fractional lasers and other Skin Resurfacing procedures, Revlite has no downtime – There is No peeling and No scabbing so you can go back to your normal activity after treatment laser penetrates the pigments, breaks it apart, absorbed into the skin, and releases the pigments naturally through the lymphatic drainage. The skin rejuvenation setting does not remove the epidermal layer of the skin.  It uses a gentle laser that harmlessly passes through the upper layer of the skin, allowing the skin to heat and stimulate collagen under the skin.  This collagen will continue to develop after the treatment.  Over the next months, your body will slowly and naturally fill in wrinkles, open pores, and scars on its own. Having Revlite treatment is like having hot tingling sensation going through your skin. You might feel a slight discomfort due to the effects of the heat but rest assured that its only temporary. To help reduce the heat and discomfort, an ice pack will be applied to the affected area after the end of the treatment. What do you need to do before getting your Revlite treatment? Before getting your Revlite treatment, here are some pre-treatment reminders: Avoid using any whitening products a day before your treatment. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. This treatment is not applicable to pregnant women. What to expect after the treatment? After the treatment, you might experience redness, mild swelling, and a little bit of discomfort which is normal, but after few hours it will subside.

Updated Photo from the same patient.  First one is after 1 session.  Next set is after 3 sessions (edited). What is Revlite Laser Toning or Skin Rejuvenation? Revlite is a Q-Switched Nd:Yag laser with 1064 nm or 532 nm wavelength that uses non-invasive light energy to gently stimulate skin’s natural collagen. Collagen is the glue that holds the body together. We would literally fall apart without collagen. Collagen in the skin breaks down as we age resulting in wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin. Furthermore, years of sun exposure and other environmental factors result in pigmentation (like freckles, melasma and sun spots), redness, and enlarged pore size.   Revlite is the best way to treat these skin problems and is indeed proven to minimize pores, treat unwanted pigmentation, rejuvenate the skin, and enhance collagen regeneration and is often called as “Laser Facial”. Basically, Revlite Laser stimulates collagen production which reduces fine lines and wrinkles, lessens or improves pore size, evens out skin tone, removes skin pigmentation and regenerates the skin. Revlite laser can also improve acne scarring and skin texture.   How does Revlite work?   Revlite laser does not affect the outermost layers of the skin and instead passes safely through the upper layers to stimulate collagen beneath the skin. Revlite Laser delivers results with no downtime, which is why patients are more inclined to avail this treatment over other ablative lasers.   5 to 10 treatments of Revlite Laser are normally recommended for maximum results at intervals of 2-4 weeks between treatments. After desired results are achieved, maintenance touch up sessions is recommended especially for treatments of melasma.   Who is Suitable for Revlite Laser Treatment?
